End-of-Life Announcements and Unsupported Technology
- As technology progresses, MANUFACTURERS phase out the support of older technology. The information below will change as SLOCOE is made aware of these “end of life” announcements from the MANUFACTURERS. This status indicates that parts and services are expected to be discontinued on these products in the near future.
Technology that is “Non-Supported” refers to hardware and software products which the MANUFACTURER is no longer supporting or which are not compatible with existing SLOCOE systems and/or infrastructure. This status indicates that parts and services can no longer be reliably obtained.
SLOCOE will continue to support this equipment with “best efforts*” by exhausting all available support resources. However, users are forewarned that eventually, service on this technology will not be possible. At that point, support of the technology will fall to the individual site or the technology will need to be surplused.
